Honeycrisp Apple Tree

It's Like Growing Dessert on a Tree!


The Benefits of Bare-Root Trees...

Bare-root trees are grown in a field and naturally have a larger root system than container grown trees. This means you get a plant that will become established quicker and provide you with superior growth in the spring.

Your tree arrives dormant (sleeping for the winter). Without foliage to support, it doesn't require as much water or nutrients to survive. So transplanting is stress-free.

If you plant in the winter, your roots will continue to grow and become more established. When spring arrives you will see bright new foliage appearing.

Selling bare-root trees allows us to offer you a higher quality product at a lower price.

Honeycrisp Apple Tree Pollination

Honeycrisp Apple Trees are not self-fertile. You will need to plant another apple tree to achieve fruiting. Below are the most common pollinators...
•  Gala Apple Tree •  Jonathan Apple Tree
•  Fuji Apple Tree •  McIntosh Apple Tree
•  Yellow Delicious Apple Tree •  Pink Lady Apple Tree
•  Granny Smith Apple Tree •  Red Delicious Apple Tree
Crab Apple Trees also make some of the best pollinators for Fruiting Apple Trees. Because they bloom for a long period of time and produce an abundance of pollen that are compatible with most Fruiting Apple Tree varieties.

For more information on apple pollination, view our Apple Pollination Guide.

It's Easy to Plant your Honeycrisp Apple Tree

Step 1 - Dig Your Hole

Select a site with full to partial sun and moist or well drained soil for your Honeycrisp Apple Tree.

First, dig each hole so that it is just shallower than the root ball and at least twice the width.

Then loosen the soil in the planting hole so the roots can easily break through.

Use your shovel or try dragging the points of a pitch fork along the sides and bottom of the hole.

Step 2 - Place Your Plant

Next, separate the roots of your Honeycrisp Apple Tree gently with your fingers and position them downward in the hole.

The top of the root flare, where the roots end and the trunk begins, should be about an inch above the surrounding soil.

Then make sure the plant is exactly vertical in the hole.

To make it just right, use a level.

Step 3 - Backfill Your Hole

As you backfill the hole, apply water to remove air pockets.

Remove debris like stones and grass and completely break up any dirt clumps.

Water your Honeycrisp Apple Tree again after the transplant is complete.

To help retain some of that moisture, it's recommended that you place mulch around each plant to a depth of 2"-3" up to but not touching the trunk. Organic mulches such as wood chips also help to better soil structure as they decompose.

Also disappointed in the growth. No blooms in second year. Leaves get brown spots. Still green so I'm just being patiently waiting.

Someone just told me that I need to plant 2 trees in order to get apples since the honey crisp doesn't self pollinate. I just ordered one tree and I don't have room for 2. What should I do? Thanks.
Katie J on Jun 7, 2014
Best Answer: Honeycrisp does not pollinate itself so yes, you need a different tree beside it. There are a few options. I went with the Granny Smith for baking. I've only had mine in the ground for a year but they did bloom this year!

typically, how many years will it take for the 5=6 tree to bear fruit?
A shopper on Jul 14, 2014
Best Answer: We bought a Honeycrisp dwarf and last year, it produced one apple. This year it has produced approximately 20 apples and they are large and healthy looking. We have been fertilizing with 5-10-10. At this point, it is our prize fruit tree. Matt. 7:13-14. God bless you.

when is the best time to plant?
A shopper on Sep 24, 2014
Best Answer: I live in Oklahoma, so here the best time is around late Sept. or early October when it is not so hot. And it gives the tree time to establish a good root system before the freeze comes.

when is it best to pick honey crisp apples?
A shopper on Sep 14, 2014
Best Answer: The season starts late August and goes through about mid Oct, so anytime in-between then is fine, the later in the season your not going to get the same as the beginning and if weather has been a factor , it can go a couple weeks either direction. But honeycrisp are one of the best because they are sweet and hardy.

How long is the growing season for these apples? Where I live there are often frosts in the first parts of June, and the end of August. Is there enough time in those 10-12 weeks for the apples to grow and ripen?
Hannah B on Aug 19, 2014
Best Answer: Our tree is small and the apples are very small still. I hope as the tree grows that they will be bigger. We haven't had our tree long enough to know if 10-12 weeks is a long enough growing season.

will the 4 in 1 apple tree pollinate the honey crisp tree? how close do they need to be planted ?
maggie m on Aug 9, 2014
Best Answer: First, my trees are planted approx. 15 feet apart. And for the tree pollination please refer to the pollination chart / guide because depending on when you got your 4-in-1 the varieties can change, what I bought a few years ago is not the same as what they have now. So please check the chart / guide , there are several the Honeycrisp will pollinate with. And also It may take longer then they claim to get fruit off your trees, if you have squirrels, they will strip your trees at nut size, and the June bugs and Japanize beetles will strip the leaves and the next year you'll have no fruit to bear at all (that's where I'm at this year). And of cores Deer also love apples. You may half to baby your trees.

Will my Trees and Shrubs Look Like the Photographs?

Most trees and plants on the website are pictured in their mature form. Depending on the product and growth rate, mature development can take years for your plant to resemble the photos.

Picture the last time you took a walk in the woods. The young trees were not miniature bonsai versions of mature trees. Instead they were naturally thin and lanky. Young trees are programmed to race toward the light, before the competing vegetation crowds them out. Once established at 10 feet or more, they start developing a wide canopy and shedding lower limbs.

Bare Root trees are shipped without dirt or any green foliage showing. Some customers who have never planted bare root before, think that they received a "dead stick" with roots. These dormant trees are basically sleeping over the winter as most trees do. Because of their hibernation-like stage, this is a great way to transplant these trees. Since a bare root tree lacks foliage, they need very little moisture.

Most Trees and Shrubs are Pruned Before Shipping... at No Cost to You

Pruning makes plants appear to be less-full than the ones you may have seen at your local big box garden center. A retailer's goal is to have plants look their best while sitting in the store. Our goal is to have them look the best after you plant them.

Pruned trees and shrubs not only travel better, but become established much quicker. So rather than supporting extra foliage, they put their energy into sending out deep roots. Once that happens, your plants become hardier and quickly explode with new top growth. Above the ground, pruning helps your plants develop a more attractive form.
